jack hills cafe is one of old cafe like the ace cafe , well known as being one of the old tower group, frequented by pop stars, ect.. its is a meeting place used by different car ,bike fanatics , regular meeting place for harley davidson groups and cruisers from abroad. it also hosts a TON UP DAY around july where hundreds of bikers from all over decend on it for a huge meet, music , stall ect.
there is videos of it on you tube.
i have seen the race crews staff from silverstone in there ,as the cafe is on the A5 / A43 junction just outside Towcester. and about 20 minutes from silverstone race circuit.
lots of the old britsh bike clubs regular turn as a stop off / watering hole.

its northamptonshire answer to the ACE CAFE... as they are both from that age vintage frequented by bikers over the years.
just checkout the you tube videos of ton up day or off the jack hills website is a link to the videos / photos.

hope this is of some interests for those going to the matlock meet as you will pass it on your way north on the A5
